WinProp Properties Generation, Pressure Loss,
and Flow Regime Analysis
The WinProp standalone program is designed to compliment the WinHeat direct fired heater, thermal rating program. This program allows the user to generate and pretest complicated process grid data prior to attempting to use in the WinHeat software. GridData may also be used to run a tube by tube analysis of a data set such as that for a fired heater. The program will input data from the Fired Heater Mechanical Data file, if available, or it may be input directly into the Griddata program. If the WinHeat data file was saved after the thermal run, then all data will be available, if not, the data will need to be supplemented with manual inputs.
The input by composition is similar to below:
The input by boiling curve is similar to below:
The output from the properties generation module is similar to below:
The grid data input form, available from either the WinHeat3, GridData, or WinProp program allows user to manually input the necessary process data.
The software may also be used to test the grid data, using the following form.
The output from the software is similar to that shown below.
